Dear Writer-Friends,

I've been self-publishing since 2011, and I've shared the knowledge I've gained in two books: the Indie Author Survival Guide, Second Edition, and For Love or Money. I'm not an indie rockstar or a breakout success: I'm one of thousands of solidly midlist indie authors making a living with their works. These books are my way of helping my fellow authors discover the freedom of indie publishing. Write on, writer-friends!

Science Fiction

Here is on my Holiday list of MUST READ THIS BOOK.


Anew is burning up the charts, and with Chelsea Fine a new Indelible, I can't wait to read it.

Contemporary Romance

The Truth About Faking is a delightful feel-good romance, just right for holiday snuggle reading.

Fractured Fairytale

Blood and Snow is also in the Top 100 Kids&Teens Books for 2012! Congrats RaShelle!

Light Historical Romance


I'm not normally a literary fiction reader, but I adored this short novella.


Great Christmas read, the true story of Santa Claus, from my friend Rick Daley.


  1. There are so many to comment on I am sitting here in awe! I'm so impressed with the cover art as well! Takes your breath away!

    Hope you had a fabulous Christmas!

  2. I hope Hugh Howey notices you hocking his book and comes and comments.

  3. Awesome list! Thanks for posting! :)

  4. Awesome list. Unfortunately, some of the ones on your 'Free' list aren't free in the UK ... we always get forgotten! But I'll be checking out a few of the above anyway.

    1. Not forgotten! Just unable to get Amazon to price match! I tried for the longest time to go free in the UK, but Amazon was "no can do" on the price match in UK.

    2. I do not think the UK is liked by Amazon. :(

      (Why did I write that sentence in passive voice? That was pointless. And I'm too lazy to change it.)

  5. I already have (and have read) a few of these, but thanks for the other tips. I've had my Kindle for a couple of years, but my new Kindle Fire is itching for some good reads. :)

  6. Susan, I can't thank you enough for including my ebook among the books mentioned here. I'm so humbled and honored.
    Thank you!

    I have quite a few of these titles in my e-library so this gives me something to help add to it. Thank you :-)

  7. Aw, thank you for the shout-out Sue!

  8. Thank you for including The Scourge, Sue! You are made of awesome.
